I see a lot of different usernames here, but I don't know, or can't intuit what most mean. So what does your username mean? Mine comes from an imaginary friend I had as a child: John's Mc John.(no, it has nothing to do with SMC.)

Mine was simply because there was a ten pence piece on my desk at the time and couldn't think of a name!

Mine was inspired by a very old picture of The Kinks. That picture with the caps and rain gear.

A character I identify with (to a certain extent) from one of my favorite movies, The Zero Effect.

Jory is a character in Philip K. Dick’s novel Ubik. The main characters discover that their bodies are hooked up to something called half-life, which keeps your consciousness alive in a computerized dream world. There are sometimes malevolent forces in half-life, however, and Jory is one of them. He causes the world around the characters to deteriorate, including their own bodies.

Sound familiar? This was written 30 years before The Matrix.

A Star Trek reference? I've been wondering what the heck your name means for quite some time now, I never would have guessed. I should have made mine Queen2Queenlvl3. :lol:

As for my name, I'd say it's relatively self explanatory. I just chose it because it's kinda meaningless but easy to remember.

Fear of Music was the Talking Heads 3rd studio album. Talking Heads is one of my favorite bands, if you don't like them then I don't like you! :lol: Here is a live performance of a song off that album:
